Warning: integrate_views and nested description groups

describe MyController do
integrate_views
describe “A common base senario” do
it “no longer integrates views” do
be_careful
end
end
end

integrate_views affects an attribute in the class formed by the describe
factory method. The second describe generates its own class, so
integrate_views is OFF at that level. I’ve already spent far, far too
much
time tracking this one down to verify that sub-describes at the same
level
independently integrate_views (I expect that they should).

This might be a candidate for additional documentation.

I took the liberty of forwarding this to a ticket at lighthouse:

I’m not sure that this is buggy behavior, which is why I did not post it
over
there. The question is if integrate_views should be a heritable trait
or
not. If it is, then we almost certainly need to be able to override
it–and
as a convenience method, to be able to do so locally. Implementing such
a
scheme would involve a four-state @integrate_views – heritably_no
(default), heritably_yes, heritably_yes_but_no_this_once, and
heritably_no_but_yes_this_once (current effect of calling
integrate_views).
Speaking of convenience, it would be nice to be able to set the value
globally. And a pony.

Thanks
